Subject: Tom Watsons Analysis Stands Today as the Best Produced in the Last 100 Years!
The title of my review says it all.
Tom Watson solves the Mary Phagan murder with ease and without needing Jim Conley's testimony! Through his brilliant logic and analysis, Tom Watson elevates Monteen Stover as the real star witness who broke Leo Frank's murder alibi, reducing Jim Conley to only an accomplice-after-the-murder.
Ready for the Most Shocking Blunder in early 20th century U.S. Courtroom History?
Leo Frank made a massive blunder in his final statement to his Trial Jury, when he said he may have unconsciously went to the bathroom between 12:05 pm and 12:10 pm, to account for Monteen Stover saying Leo Frank was not in his office during that time.
Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence (1913):
Now gentlemen [of the Jury], to the best of my recollection from the time the whistle blew for twelve o’clock [noon on Saturday, April 26, 1913] until after a quarter to one [12:46 p.m.] when I went up stairs and spoke to Arthur White and Harry Denham [at the rear of the fourth floor], to the best of my recollection, I did not stir out of the inner office [at the front of the second floor]; but it is possible that in order to answer a call of nature or to urinate I may have gone to the toilet [in the metal room at the rear of the second floor]. Those are things that a man does unconsciously and cannot tell how many times nor when he does it (Leo Frank Trial Statement, August 18, Brief of Evidence, 1913).
The blunder of Leo Frank's statement, is it puts him exactly where Mary Phagan was killed and where her body was initially found by Jim Conley. Leo Frank basically admitted he killed Mary Phagan in the Metal Room between 12:05 pm and 12:10 pm.
The two attorneys who articulate the Leo Frank murder confession in their closing arguments are the Solicitor General Hugh M. Dorsey and his associate, Frank Arthur Hooper for the State's prosecution team, but if the truth be known, Tom Watson offers a much more delicious interpretation of Leo Frank murder confession in his August and September issue of Watson's Magazine (1915).
Be Sure to Read All Five of Tom Watson's magazine articles on the subject of Leo Frank Saga in his Watson's Magazine, January, March, August, September and October 1915.
The solution to the Mary Phagan murder is that Leo Frank made an admission at his trial that amounted to a murder trial confession, but even after making the biggest blunder in early 20th century courtroom history, Leo Frank would proclaim his innocence.

Subject: Warning -- one-sided
Unfortunately, this material sited here is one-sided and the reference to the Leofrank .org website is disturbing. The worst thing that can happen in this country is for people to revive the Leo Frank solely for the purpose of attacking Jewish people. If you are going to read the material cited here, you should at least read the other points of views, e.g., books by Steve Oney and Leonard Dinnerstein. Keep an open mind and don't get fooled. If you think there was no anti-semitism in the south in 1914, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn you'd like to buy.
Subject: Bigotry should not be ignored
Frank absolutely did not have a fair trial - that's why the cases so famous. Jurors were bullied and threatened. The media, particularly Tom Watson's writings in the Jeffersonian, spewed anti-semitic hatred toward Frank - and lied about evidence. The person who was appointed to investigate his lynching was one of the organizers of the lynch mob. Try as the poster of this garbage may, he cannot re-write history and whitewash Tom Watson's (and others') bigotry.
Subject: Bigotry begets bigotry II
"A perspective by someone who wan't blackmailed by the jews?" Or an anti-semitic, bigoted perspective that ignored evidence here, manufactured some evidence there? And thrived on the kind of hatred the previous reviewer exhibits. And, I remind you, Watson endorsed lynching (and the KKK). Again, I invite any reader to look up the writings of Tom Watson, the source of this junk analysis and judge for yourself if he was a hate-filled bigot out to persecute Leo Frank. He apparently appeals to bigots of multiple centuries.
Subject: A perspective from someone who isn't blackmailed by the Jews
I believe that the article comes off as honest and clear. Leo Frank did have a fair trial after all and tried to pin the murder he committed on someone else.
Subject: For pity's sake, Watson was a liar and a bigot
Who is this guy and why is he championing the likes of Tom Watson? Why doesn't he just once address the fact that Watson was a lying bigot, and there are plenty of examples of his racist, KKK-supporting, anti-semitic, anti-Catholic, lynching-provoking writings anyone could look up. Watson spent unusual enrgy first assuring that Frank was prosecuted - despite the fact that another man admitted to the murder - and then, once Franks's death sentence was commuted, incited the lynching. You really have to wonder what's motivating the guy who posts all these comments about how smart and wonderful Watson was.
Subject: For pity's sake, Tom Watson was a paranoid, KKK-loving bigot!
Folks,please look up Tom Watson, the source of all this nonsense. A southern populist politician, he used bigotry and hatred in his writings. When Frank's sentence was commuted - because it looked like the witness who testified against him might actually be the killer - Watson went on a rampage, giving hate-filled speeches, saying that lynching Frank would be "God;s work". I mean, look at some of the titles of the referenced articles: "The Jew Pervert", and ""Rich Jews Indict a State", all published by his own publishing company. Just do a search for Tom Watson and the Catholic church, and you'll find hateful speeches about Catholics and the Pope, too. And look up his writings where he called for a resurgence of the KKK! And reviewers here and elsewhere - given the barrier of 100 years - casually claim that this bigot is thoughtful analyst. He was not. He was a bigot, who called for and celebrated the lynching of Frank --- and others!
Subject: dynamite and gasoline for the prosecution
move over sherlock holmes, watson solves the mary phagan murder with intensity and verve. watons collective writings on the leo m. frank çase are logically reasoned and filled with an energetic sarcasm and wit. If not for some of the antisemitic language contained in his aggregate writings on the subject of leo m. frank, he would undeniably deserve five out of five stars, building a solid convincing case for the prosecution.
